Ryosuke Itoh (KEK)


The Belle II experiment is a new generation B-factory experiment at KEK in Japan. The construction of the SuperKEKB accelerator and the Belle II detector is now in progress aiming at the commissioning in 2016. In the conference, the physics motivation of the experiment, the search for New Physics in the enormous number of B meson and other decays, is discussed in detail with a view of the search strategy. The current construction status of the accelerator and detector is also reported, and the possible commissioning scenario is described.
